Yes, I would recommmend removing the paste. Since it's been there for over 6 months months, a fresh apply would have been much better.

Some people reapply it every couple months.. not me though. It's not really unsafe to leave it there, but it would be better if it was cleaned, so that it can do it's job properly.
